Technology Used for Collecting Information
I wanted to add that most of the attacks I see, because we're focused on detecting threats outside the firewall, are exploitations of the very technology used to collect user information. All of us are surrounded by this technology, at all times. We don't even know its there and we were never given the choice to accept it. Its the cost of the 'free' Internet.

Aside from my own tirade (stepping off my soap box now) I find the points made in this article very fascinating. I particularly like the points about whittling down the critical infrastructure list. Also, it is nice to see someone outside of technology recognize the dangers of tampering with encryption.

Re: Speaking sense
Unfortunately, even when you are in a position to make change happen the procedures and hoops you need to jump through to streamline initiatives is daunting.

Plus without sometype of cohesion between the government and private sectors, any resolution remains inconsistent at best.

But yes, I very much agree with your statement.

Speaking sense
It's great to see someone in such a high profile position speaking a lot of sense about encryption, privacy and the encroachment of law enforcement into the mandates of large corporations.

That said, it's very typical that these sorts of radical thoughts are mainly aired after a person has left a position of governmental power. Why is that these peopelc an only speak their minds when they are unable to do much about it?
